CFF welcomed Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding to the farm to help harvest potatoes and to speak about the Pennsylvania Agricultural Surplus System (PASS), which helps farms fight hunger.
Here at CFF, we custom-grow top-quality organic vegetables, eggs and meat for donation to Philadelphia-area families in need. Our work is rooted in the belief that everyone deserves access to healthful, nutritious foods, and our farm crew works hard to grow everything from carrots, collards, kale and cucumbers to pastured poultry and grassfed beef, specifically to donate to soup kitchens, food pantries, free farmers markets and other non-profit donation partners. Last year we donated over 120,000 pounds of custom-grown organic food, and this year we’re on track to beat that significantly.
But the need is far greater than this one farm can address. That’s why we applaud the PASS program–which will help provide more farm fresh produce to the charitable food system. We’re grateful to Secretary Redding’s work on these issues – and in our potato field today!
